My Sister

I actually did a 2 page layout! I need to do MANY more but maybe I'm started back in the process again. I used my faithful Sketch Inspiration site for "inspiration". I actually only used the sketch for the left side. Here's Sketch #346
Here is my page
I used papers and embellishments from Fancy Pants new collection "The Good Life" I purchased at my LSS Cat's Creations. You'll be seeing this hanging in the store. One Sunday afternoon when Remi was here I took the girls to a little park about 10 blks from the house pulling them in their wagon my mother helped me buy for them.
This is the other page. that I'm looking at it again...I'm thinking I may make some changes...or maybe not.

I made another tag. This design isn't original. It was based off the tag Nanci made as a sample at the last Tim Holtz tag class last Thursday.
I used an embossing folder on the tag. Then inked with Distress Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, and Barn Door. I pierced tag and ran dark brown twine through. I stamped the Cowboy & horse from TH Wild West Collection, colored with Distress Inks using a blender pen and cut it out. The wreath is a TH die cut. The pine branches is a slim die by Impression Obsession. I used red bling for the berries on the wreath. The sign I made by stamping with a wood grain image with Distress Gathered Twigs and using clear embossing powder. I then went over the image again with Gathered Twigs. The sentiment was from the new TH stamp collection "Christmas Memories". I stamped with Black Archival Ink then used Distress Pine Needles and cut out the sentiment and attached with foam tape.

Well, it's Thanksgiving Eve. Hope everyone has a wonderful time with family, friends and just taking a moment to "give thanks". We really are a blessed people. God is good!

Have a good one!


  1. You did a great job with the layout and sketch! I was admiring Nanci's western Christmas tag at the retreat - no surprise you were inspired as well! :-)

  2. Great job on the layout--glad you made one. Love that paper line and glad you used it. That tag is fabulous!
